The current school holiday break means a pause for many, and perhaps even a well-deserved break. It’s also the perfect time for educators and services to start thinking about gearing up to welcome a new season of learning and growth!
To help you prepare for a fantastic Term 4, let’s explore some valuable insights from the Bonkers Beat Wellness Refresher event and share tips to keep you motivated and inspired.
The Value of our Wellness Refresher
The end of Term 3 can often leave educators feeling a bit drained. It’s crucial to take a step back and rejuvenate before diving into the excitement of Term 4. Before Term 3 wrapped up, we hosted the Bonkers Beat Wellness Refresher event — a unique opportunity for early childhood professionals to focus on self-care, gain fresh insights, and be inspired. A lot of what we covered is perfect for carrying into term 4.
This virtual event was the perfect platform for educators, directors and owners of services to come together and learn, share experiences, and rejuvenate their approach to early childhood education. In this event, we covered a wide range of topics to refresh everyone on the importance of wellbeing practices and creativity. We covered music and movement to enhance physical development and cognitive skills, mindfulness and wellbeing techniques to ensure educators and children prioritise self-care and so much more. Thanks to everyone who came — check out the album from the event here.
